think of them as blessings


Here's one song that can help us handle whatever negative and unpleasant things we are going through at the moment and see them in a different perspective. It's called  "Blessings" from the Laura Story album. I wish I can get hold of a copy of her album before the year ends.



Are you one of those who think that you've been bombarded with problems after another? Health reasons? Financial difficulties? Family problems? Loss of a loved one? Whatever problems we have at hand, it's time that we think of them as blessings and offer them to God.

love song for no one

After learning about the success of John Mayer Live in Manila concert last October 1st despite the heavy rain, I thought it must have been a really really good concert. When I was still single, I had the chance to watch concerts of bands and even solo performers playing this type of music genre. It's nice to watch concerts once in a while especially when you don't have any guilt feelings about spending for your tickets to the show because you know you deserve it.

John Mayer is really known for his great acoustic music and for talking a lot in his performances. :-) To give you an idea of what it would have been like to be in one of his concerts, you can check out this video I found from youtube. It's called Love Song For No One and I dedicate this song to the DGs (read my previous post about what the acronym stands for) and to all people who are probably tired of being alone. LOL.




Love Song For No One Lyrics
Staying home alone on a Friday
Flat on the floor looking back
On old love
Or lack thereof
After all the crushes are faded
And all my wishful thinking was wrong
I'm jaded
I hate it

I'm tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here
So tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here
Get here

Searching all my days just to find you
I'm not sure who I'm looking for
I'll know it
When I see you
Until then, I'll hide in my bedroom
Staying up all night just to write
A love song for no one

I'm tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here
So tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here

I could have met you in a sandbox
I could have passed you on the sidewalk
Could I have missed my chance
And watched you walk away?
Oh no way

I could have met you in a sandbox
I could have passed you on the sidewalk
Could I have missed my chance
And watched you walk away?

I'm tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here
I'm so tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here oh yeah

I'm tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here
I'm so tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here

You'll be so good
You'll be so good for me

music monday: opposites attract by juris

I have a new favorite song that I would like to share with all the music monday participants and to my few mashkan readers as well. Sometimes I do feel like the easiest job in the world that won't feel like a job at all would be being a DJ on the radio. Oh, that's if you like all kinds of music and you love to chit chat with your listeners. Agree or disagree? Hmmm, just a thought but I am actually not considering it because I don't have a lovely speaking voice, anyway. LOL.

Anyway, going back to the song - this one is entitled "Opposites Attract", sang by one of my favorite OPM singers, Juris Fernandez. She was once the lead vocalist to the MYMP band. Now, she's a signed member of the ASAP Sessionistas.

I dedicate this song to my hubby.  I really can't wait for October, huh! Check out the song - nice melody, nice lyrics, nice voice. What a great package!



Opposites Attract (Lyrics)

You're a morning kind of person
Everything is spic and span
I could live with all the clutter
Stay so late at night I can
I would often think it out loud
Say whatever's on my mind
You would rather keep your mouth shut
Leave the details all behind

You take me just as I am
No more, no less, just as I am, oh yeah

I wanna go right, you'd rather go left
I wanna go fight, you'd rather be quiet
I wanna be right, you'd rather be wrong
I wanna be weak, you'd rather be strong
Movin' along, singin' our song
Opposites do attract
Needing each other, always together
Opposites still attract

You would rather choose to follow
I would rather lead the play
I would do it all tomorrow
You would do it all today
I just want the nitty-gritty
You would rather summarize
Every detail of the story
That you never emphasize

You take me just as I am
No more, no less, just as I am, oh yeah

I wanna go right, you'd rather go left
I wanna go fight, you'd rather be quiet
I wanna be right, you'd rather be wrong
I wanna be weak, you'd rather be strong
Movin' along, singin' our song
Opposites still attract
Needing each other, always together
Opposites still attract

You take me just as I am
No more, no less, just as I am, oh yeah

I wanna go right, you'd rather go left
I wanna go fight, you'd rather be quiet
I wanna be right, you'd rather be wrong
I wanna be weak, you'd rather be strong
Movin' along, singin' our song
Opposites still attract
Needing each other, always together
Opposites still attract

Movin' along, singin' our song
Opposites do attract
Needing each other, always together
Opposites do attract

Movin' along, singin' our song
Opposites still attract
Needing each other, always together
Opposites still attract

Movin' along, singin' our song
Opposites still attract
Needing each other, always together
Opposites still attract

music monday - where are you now?

Happy Monday, everyone. We've been singing along with this song that's been playing on the radio for weeks now. So, I'd like to share this one as my entry for Music Monday. It's called Where Are You Now by Honor Society band. Ever heard of it? Even though not all the lyrics to the song fit me but somehow I can relate a little (or probably more) - especially when it comes to memories of high school and friends, best friends and some secret stuff. :-)

Okay. This video already has one million plus views. So I wouldn't be surprised if you've already watched it. LOL. Just wanted to share. So, for those who have not yet seen it or heard the song, go ahead and indulge. :-)



So, what do you remember when you listen to this song?

Music Monday: A House Is Not A Home

Here's the late Luther Vandross' version of A House Is Not A Home. I love this song - this was exactly the song I had in mind when I wrote about our house.. ER.. home sweet home. For me, whether it's from Dionne Warwick or Luther Vandross, this song is timeless!

I must say though that I love how Luther Vandross sang it with so much emotion. In fact, someone described it as "flawless" even though this was sang live. Check out the music video and you'll know why.

Music Monday - The Climb

Ahhh... Let's turn Hannah Montana today. I feel like singing Miley Cyrus' The Climb. This is really a very good motivation song, isn't it?

Music Monday - If I Ain't Got You

I feel like singing this song today and for the rest of the week! This is a song by Alicia Keys. It's called "If I Ain't Got You". This is like a personal song.



Somehow, this song has a double meaning to me. It can be a song for my husband and it can also be dedicated to the Lord. How's that? I once listened to my Aunt Sarah doing a cover of this song and replaced the word "baby" with "Lord" and it then turned out to be a really beautiful song that she offered to the Lord.

music monday - rainbow

For this week's Music Monday, my entry is the song called Rainbow. This is a song from my favorite Filipino band, Southborder. I love this song - the voices behind it, the melody and the lyrics! You have to listen to this, guys...


P.S.
I especially dedicate this song to my very good friend. She knows who she is. :-) I don't know what she's going through right now (because she's not telling) but I hope she's okay. Hugs to you, my friend.

Music Monday - Defining Moment

Music Monday, here I come! Let me share to you one of the songs that has a huge impact on me. I am referring to this song by NewSong entitled "Defining Moment". This is a song from their album called Sheltering Tree. This album was on my wish list two or three years ago, I love all of their songs in it. I've been looking everywhere for this album here but I couldn't find it at my favorite record bars.

What's your defining moment? Let us all aim to reach this ultimate defining moment in our lives.

NewSong - Defining Moment
Found at abmp3 search engine

Defining Moment Lyrics

There comes a time in every heart a time of real decision
When we reach the point of choosing how we will live our lives
All our hopes, all our dreams will rise up from that moment
The moment we surrender and choose to follow Christ
He's been waiting all our lives to hear us say
I am yours, Lord, take my hand and lead the way

When you believe He's all you need
That will be your defining moment
As you live your life walking in His light
Trusting Him completely
That will be, that will be your defining moment

All I have, all I am is resting in His promise
The promise that He'll make me everything that I should be
I will live, I will die, for the cause He's set before me
To take this love inside my heart for all the world to see

All of heaven celebrates when they hear someone say
I am yours, Lord, take my hand and lead the way

His amazing grace is such a mystery
How in an instant it can make your life complete

music monday - take me out of the dark

I've been looking for the perfect song for my Music Monday entry. I know a lot of great songs. In fact, everyday I've always experienced a "last song syndrome". However, I don't like what I've been hearing lately - they are always music from politicians' ads on television (didpdip is enjoying them, though). I don't feel too mushy to feature my favorite love songs as well.

Thankfully, I bumped into this really beautiful song by Gary Valenciano. It's called Take Me Out Of The Dark. This has been a favorite song of mine ever since this song became a hit.


It's been a while since I last heard this song, so when I heard it and read the lyrics again, I can't help my tears from falling. So, I'm sharing this to you now. Hope you'll find a deeper meaning to the song like I always do... Happy listening!

Music Monday - How Do You Keep The Music Playing?

It's Monday and it's Music Monday time once again. One of my favorite songs is "How Do You Keep The Music Playing?" by James Ingram and Patti Austin. This is a beautiful and meaningful song especially for the couples out there.

We also have a home video performance of this song where I sang only at the first part but I don't want to embed it here, only because I was there during the first part. But if you want to view how I messed up the song, you can view it here. :-)

How Do You Keep The Music Playing? Lyrics

How do you keep the music playing?
How do you make it last?
How do you keep the song from fading
too fast?

How do you lose yourself to someone
and never lose your way?
How do you not run out of new things
to say?

And since you know we're always changing
How can it be the same?

And tell me how year after year
You're sure your heart won't fall apart
Each time you hear his name?

I know the way I feel for you is now or never
The more I love, the more that I'm afraid
That in your eyes I may not see forever, forever

If we can be the best of lovers
Yet be the best of friends
If we can try with every day to make it better as it grows
With any luck then I suppose
The music never ends

I know (how do you keep the music playing)
the way I feel for you is now or never (how do you make it last)
The more I love the more that I'm afraid
(how do you keep the song from fading)
That in your eyes I may not see forever
(Keep the song from fading)
Forever

If we can be the best of lovers
yet be the best of friends
If we can try with every day to make it better as it goes
With any luck then I suppose
The music never ends

Music Monday - Love Is In The Air

For my music Monday entry, here's a wonderful song and video of Love Is In The Air, a version sang in one of our videoke sessions with Geir, my sister-in-law's Norwegian husband. If you've been to my previous posts, you must have watched him perform an Elvis song. Love Is In The Air is a 70's song which was made popular by John Paul Young.



Love Is In The Air Lyrics

Love is in the air
Everywhere I look around
Love is in the air
Every sight and every sound

And I don't know if I'm being foolish
Don't know if I'm being wise
But it's something that I must believe in
And it's there when I look in your eyes

Love is in the air
In the whisper of the trees
Love is in the air
In the thunder of the sea

And I don't know if I'm just dreaming
Don't know if I feel sane
But it's something that I must believe in
And it's there when you call out my name

(Chorus)
Love is in the air
Love is in the air
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

Love is in the air
In the rising of the sun
Love is in the air
When the day is nearly done

And I don't know if you're an illusion
Don't know if I see it true
But you're something that I must believe in
And you're there when I reach out for you

Love is in the air
Every sight and every sound
And I don't know if I'm being foolish
Don't know if I'm being wise

But it's something that I must believe in
And it's there when I look in your eyes

(Repeat Chorus 4X)

Music Monday - Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now

This is my first time to join Music Monday. I thought it would be nice to greet the week with a beautiful song, Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now, originally from Starship but I think the band did the MYMP version in this video (from our October 2007 wedding). This was played and sang during our wedding dance.




Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now lyrics

Looking in your eyes I see a paradise
This world that I found is too good to be true
Standing here beside you, want so much to give you
This love in my heart that I'm feeling for you

Let 'em say we're crazy, don't care 'bout that
Put your hand in my hand baby, don't ever look back
Let the world around us just fall apart
Baby, we can make it if we're heart to heart

And we can build this dream together, standing strong forever
Nothing's gonna stop us now
And if this world runs out of lovers, we'll still have each other
Nothing's gonna stop us, nothing's gonna stop us now
Woh woh oh

I'm so glad I found you, I'm not gonna lose you
Whatever it takes, I will stay here with you
Take it to the good times, see it through the bad times
Whatever it takes is what I'm gonna do

Let 'em say we're crazy, what do they know
Put your arms around me baby, don't ever let go
Let the world around us just fall apart
Baby, we can make it if we're heart to heart

And we can build this dream together, standing strong forever
Nothing's gonna stop us now
And if this world runs out of lovers, we'll still have each other
Nothing's gonna stop us, nothing's gonna stop us

Ooh, all that I need is you
All that I ever need
And all that I want to do
Is hold you forever, forever and ever

And we can build this dream together, standing strong forever
Nothing's gonna stop us now
And if this world runs out of lovers, we'll still have each other
Nothing's gonna stop us, nothing's gonna stop us
Woh oh oh-oh-oh
Nothing's gonna stop us, nothing's gonna stop us now
Hey baby

And we can build this dream together, standing strong forever
Nothing's gonna stop us now
And if this world runs out of lovers, we'll still have each other
Nothing's gonna stop us, nothing's gonna stop us now

Talking About The New Normal

What's the new normal these days? This got me thinking today, and I thought I should make a list. 1. Wearing Masks. Obviously, it'...
